Colombia Legalizes Marijuana Cultivation for Medicinal Use

TelesurTV: The legalization of medical marijuana in Colombia marks the latest move away from the hard-line “war on drugs” championed by the United States.
The Colombian Senate approved a bill Wednesday that legalizes the use and cultivation of marijuana for medical purpose, making it the fourth Latin American country to relax its marijuana laws.

The bill, which still must be approved by the Constitutional Court and signed by President Juan Manuel Santos, will replace an existing decree issued by the president in December.
